Can resonators be removed from all tenor banjos?
I am thinking of getting a tenor banjo in the next few months. I will be playing in a small group, not sessions, so I would prefer an open back TB. Plus, have guitar and mandolin so need it to be lighter to carry to and from the car.
I know if I do start playing in sessions a resonator would be good to have. So simple question: is it possible to remove resonators from all banjos? I don’t want to pass over potentially good instruments for something I could work around.
